SSG

ORGANIZATION:

5-10 players: 3 Attackers, 2 Defenders; 15x12 yard area; 3 scoring gates

INSTRUCTIONS:

The game will begin with 3 attacking players on the field - two wide players and one support player must always stay behind the play - and two defenders also on the field. The attacking team will try to score goals by dribbling through any one of the three gates; defenders will score by dribbling across the attacking team's endline. No forward passes can be made, only sideways or backwards. If ball goes out of play or goal is scored, the attacking team will get a new ball and begin again.

COACHING POINTS:

1. Proper dribbling/turning technique

2. Recognition of penetration v possession --- If 1st defender closes ball and there is 2nd defender behind in support, look to turn away from pressure and find the open space/teammate

ORGANIZATION:

6-12 players, teams of 3-4; 25x20 yard area; 4 goals, 2 on each endline

INSTRUCTIONS:

Two teams will play a regular match. Players are free to go anywhere on the field. Goals may only be scored when ALL players from the attacking team are outside of their defensive 1/3 of the field.

COACHING POINTS:

1. Proper dribbling/turning technique

2. Recognition of penetration v possession

***This forces the player in possession to maintain ball until support arrives; can the player in possession be patient with the ball??

Teaches the player with the ball to recognize that they may need to hold the ball and wait for help to arrive; teaches that if defense has numbers back we need to maintain ball longer and draw out the defense - if not we can try to beat our opponent and get into space behind them

Teaches the players off the ball to get up field quickly, not to watch the play develop, and provide support to player with ball (needs multiple options; width and depth)
